Stupid sports: Knicks’ “One Shining Moment”, Hermes’ baseball glove and Kliff Kingsbury is a HAM

Miss me? Yeah, try cialis I took a little break from writing about all-things idiotic. I got caught up with new clients and working and, you know, maintaining my livelihood. Blah. But you guys are never too far from my heart, and I’ve been keeping a diligent eye on the happenings of stupid people, places and things in the sports world. Ready? Let’s do this.

The Knicks’ awful season is over and they’re still making us laugh

Some genius decided to put together a “One Shining Moment” video for the New York Knicks season and I literally laughed out loud for for two minutes and 33 seconds straight. I especially loved the ending montage of Mike Woodson faces. You know, those faces he makes on the sidelines – usually invoked by something J.R. Smith did. But then I stopped laughing for a second because I realized he was probably gonna get fired and it’s not nice to laugh at unemployed people, even if they are rich…ok, still laughing.

What would you pay $14,100 for?

I’ve been pondering this question ever since I saw this Hermes baseball glove that, at this point in time, is more valuable than my 2009 Elantra.

And then I saw it.

Really? This is it? A brown baseball glove? Where are the bells and whistles? The diamonds? The Swarovski crystal encrusted baseball that comes with it? There’s not even any gold in that thing. I’m disappointed. I’m sure it’s the most luxurious leather in all of Italy. But, no. Hermes: C-.

We’re getting married!! On reality television!!

Say what you want about the reality show, but that ring is flawless. Kudos, A.J. Photo credit: Ring Envy

This is what the world has come to: a college quarterback (A.J. McCarron) proposes to his former beauty queen girlfriend (Katherine Webb) and they get a reality show to commemorate the occasion. I’m saying it right now; if any of my friends have weddings where I have to sign a release to enter the building, I’m not fucking going OR buying you a gift. BURN.

Do I need to say more?

Turns out, good things do come from Indiana

Yes. I’m judging that outfit. Photo credit:

And it just so happens to be an Indiana Pacers fan with a great sense of humor. I’m not going to lie; I rarely watch the NBA. But I know that Paul George was really good for a while. Apparently, not so much anymore. A fan put an add on Craigslist for George’s missing talent.

Hey maybe a Cubs fan could put an ad up for missing wins or good players or something.

Too soon?
